Erasmus+ is a programme of the European Union named after Erasmus of Rotterdam, a humanist with a universal European education in his time.
Central components are the recognition of study achievements abroad based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and financial support for exchange students. Signing the ERASMUS Charter for Higher Education creates an obligation to adhere to the corresponding quality standards.
This means that study visits, internships abroad as part of studies, teaching stays as well as further training for general university staff can be funded. The Erasmus programme is open to all students who are regular students at a participating higher education institution. The same applies to teaching and administrative staff. However, the prerequisite is that the sending and the receiving higher education institution have a corresponding bilateral agreement.
Landshut University of Applied Sciences has declared the continuous expansion of international activities and partnerships via an ERASMUS + Strategy Statement.
The main objective of the programme is to strengthen the employability of students by promoting their mobility. At the same time, by promoting the mobility of academic staff, the expansion of the European Research Area is to be advanced.
With the Erasmus+ programme, you have the unique opportunity to spend between 2 and 12 months studying or working abroad in Europe and to receive financial support. Further information can be found under funding opportunities.
